On This Date, April 6th in 1998: Wendy O. Williams, outrageous vocalist and front woman for The Plasmatics died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds after attempting suicide on several previous occasions. She was 48 years old. As the chief focal point of Plasmatics’ live performances, Williams was infamous for her wild stage theatrics which included blowing up equipment, partial nudity and chain-sawing television sets and guitars onstage. RIP Wendy, you were one of a kind.
Aggronautix Toys have just released their very first female “Throbblehead” Bobblehead doll, the infamous late Plasmatics’ frontwoman Wendy O. Williams. ” Wendy O. Williams 1982″ – which captures Wendy’s incredible 1982 look – stands at 7 inches tall and is available in the limited capacity of 2000 numbered units. Displayed in a tri-windowed box, she is accurately sculpted right down to the platinum blonde Mohawk, spiked arm bands and tattered post-apocalyptic bikini. I swear to god, when I look at this doll I can almost hear her belting out “Sex Junkie” right now. Punk Rock! Wendy is the sixth punk personality to be polyresinated by Aggronautix.
Thanks to Plastic and Plush for the Tip!
